The service World Wide Web (www) uses the protocol HTTP - HyperText Transfer Protocol.
Typically you see the protocol in use when a new URL (Uniform Ressource Locator) is called in a browser. Below you see an example of a URL.
"http://" corresponds to the protocol - i.e. HTTP. "www.imma.dk" is a domain name
, corresponding to the webserver I want to get in touch with. Finally "/battleships/start.html" is the path to the file, I want.
